About this project

The Wild One Tour: The Last Stand for Wild Horses of America

To save 50,000 beautiful wild horses from being either slaughtered or confined in holding pens by the US government, independent musician and wild horse protection advocate, Saie Saie will ride 400 miles horseback and perform at venues along the Pacific Crest trail to create awareness and raise funds to save the wild horses.

Awareness + Action = A Solution

Awareness Is The First Step 

This Kickstarter will act as a launching pad for Saie Saie to both generate funds for her Wild One Campaign, which is a musical tour and spark the momentum needed to save wild horses. This campaign seeks to achieve three goals:  a broader awareness of the issue; raise funds for contraceptions for the horses, and return the horses to Native American reservations.

“Historically, fundraising shows were one of the most successful platforms for an artist tospeak out for a cause they believed in. Today, thanks to digital platforms likekickstarter and social media, a singular event can transcend awareness into a global conversation empowering others to have a voice for a cause in order to create a solution”.I want to use both platforms to raise awareness and prevent the slaughter of wild horses in America”.- Saie Saie

Action Speaks Louder than Words

Wild One Campaign:
- Saie Saie will journey horseback on her horse Hinto and with a small team for two months from Los Angeles to Palomino Valley, where 50,000 horses are confined in 3% of their allowed space.
- Saie Saie will document her entire journey on social media (Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook -a combined 40,000 followers) urging them to spread the message about saving the wild horses.
- Along the journey, Saie Saie will continue to connect with political officials, the media and others in an effort to create a broader awareness of the issue.
- Along the trail, Saie Saie will perform at several venues raising awareness and funds for the campaign.

Solution Focused
Success will be defined if we can raise enough awareness to persuade Congress to overturn the 1971 Amendment –returning the protection of wild horses. The basics of the equation show that the amendment was created for a very specific purpose to favor the cattle industry and not to protect the wild horses.

The end goal is to raise money for contraceptives for the wild horses so that they don’t over populate and then coordinate a  move of the wild horses from BLM land to various Native american reservations in the US. It’s been proven that the wild horses DNA is from North America a  and this solution is a far better than paying 80 million dollars (of tax payer money) a year to have them captivated.

WE MUST TAKE A STAND - SITTING ON THE ISSUE WILL NOT SAVE THE HORSES

Risks and challenges

Journeys such as this are very dangerous. I am currently training my Horse Hinto for this specific type of journey, but as he is a live animal - the danger of unexpected situations is real. I could get injured, he could get injured, one of my teammates could be injured.

The reason I want to promise direct musical gifts is so everyone who supports me feel's they have received the rewards they asked for.

Along the long path to permanently save the Wild Horses, there will be unexpected developments, challenges, and achievements.

What we need to do is just get started - after that, all things (good or bad) will start to fall into place.

I'm excited for the adventure and I hope you are as well!
